    PB Hastalis

    Howdy all! Went fishing last night and because it was so rubbish I went fossiling instead! Handy when both of your hobbies take place on the same bit of beach! Strong South East winds had built the sea up coupled with a big ish tide and the cliffs were taking a pounding! Perfect for teethies! However, as perfect as it looked, the teeth didn’t want to play ball. The pick of the bunch was a 61mm C.Hastalis which is the biggest I’ve found or seen from Suffolk or even England. Has some lovely lighting strikes patina markings on it which is typical of teeth from the red crag formation.

    Teeth Everywhere

    Good afternoon everyone! Hit the beach this morning, big tides and strong winds had done a grand job of scouring out the cliffs and teeth littered the beach. The majority were Isurus, one baby Meg, few broken Otodus Obliquus and one Carcharodon Carcharias (showing faint striations) being the stand out teeth. Also found a couple of fish vertebrae and some ray plate chunks. One unknown tooth, any ideas on this one? It is a lot broader than the usual Isurus. Few photos of the beach showing the red crag cliffs with un

    Storm Alex Finds

    After storm Alex hit this weekend, went out for an hour this morning to a deserted beach. Waves have been pushing against the cliffs and a few fresh falls are evident. First find was a partial Meg chunk. With a little bit of enamel left. Picked up a nice isurus by the fresh fall along with an Otodus tip. Lastly and without doubt the find of the day was this what I think is a Carcharodon Hastalis. 62mm making it the largest one I’ve found. It has some wonderful blue colours to it that the phot

    Weekends finds

    Hello all. Put in quite a few hours over the weekend in between fishing sessions. A few teeth but nothing amazing, even the locals are all struggling. Need a big storm to bring a bit more of the cliff down.

    Unknown Red Crag tooth

    Hello all, Found this yesterday at Bawdsey, Suffolk. From the red crag bed 3.3-2.5 MYA. Any ideas on what species it’s from? Never found one this “chunky”.

    Red Crag Croc or fish tooth?

    Hello all! Sorted through one of my sharks teeth tubs and this one caught my eye. From the Red Crag beds at Bawdsey, Suffolk, England. Size is 15mm long, rounded and has worn striations around the whole tooth. Am I correct in assuming that this is a small crocodile tooth? Any input would be gratefully appreciated.
  7. Hello all! Took the hounds down the local beach for a walk and thought I’d have a quick look for teeth as I was there. Sea was nice and rough with the wind coming off it pushing the waves against the cliff. Straight away I was finding lots of Isurus teeth on the tide line which had derived from the Red Crag. They often have lovely markings that look like white lightning and really are quiet pretty. Got one nice Carcharodon tooth at just under 50mm which is a nice size here. Few more bits n bobs and by that time the dogs wer

    Fossil horse tooth

    Is this likely to be a fossil tooth from the age of the London Clay. Rather than a modern horse tooth? Found at Maylandsea beach. Many thanks for advice!

    Storm Dennis Megs

    Got up nice and early to beat any other fossil enthusiasts who may be heading to the beach. However due to storm Dennis hitting the UK I didn’t need to as it was raining cats and dogs and rather windy! Anyway, got down to the red crag cliffs that have taken a hammering in the strong winds we have been having the past month. Within the first ten minutes found a heart brake half Meg, shame cause it was 94mm long. Found a smaller 59mm well polished Meg about ten yards away and thought I was going to be in for a Meg tooth filled day!

    Another English Meg!

    Good evening everyone! Quickly headed out to the local beach after work before storm Brendan hit, few little teeth before this caught my eye. 81mm and very worn, typical English Meg. Also found what I think is a partial crocodile scute from the London clay beds? If so it’s a first for me! Thanks all!

    English Megalodon!

    Had a quick trip down to my local beach after work. We have had massive storms along with large spring tides so the red crag cliffs have taken a battering. Dodging heavy rain, thunder and lightning. Found nothing of major significance for an hour and was getting soaked through so decided to head back to the car with my tail between my legs. Walking along and this was just lying on the shingle! 95mm long just sitting there!!! My first complete Meg. Needless to say I was rather happy! Thanks for reading!
  12. Well following on from my post yesterday, I headed down to the same beach after work again. This time with no lightning or heavy rain to worry about. Started scanning the shingle picking up a few smaller teeth, the plan was to head up the cliffs maybe 500 yards and check at the base of them as this is where the better teeth are normally located. However, upon getting there, the cliffs were clearly not safe with many parts having overhanging material! My concerns were soon confirmed when a huge section came down a bit further down the beach. No tooth is worth getting buried for, so I soon
  13. Hi all! Have been out the past couple of weekends to my local sharks teeth spot - Bawdsey in Suffolk, the first three trips i spent on the first area of the beach directly below the red crag cliffs. Found a few but none of really any quality. Best one was a very pretty patterned Carcharocles auriculatus ? (Can anyone confirm?) seen in the first photo top left, and a very worn large tooth (seen in the second photo, looks a bit Meggy?) - I have no idea about species on this one! As well as the usual Carcharias hopei and Striatolamia macrota, a couple of fish verts, some seed pods an
  14. Headed down to Bawdsey in Suffolk for a few hours. The beach has built up loads covering up the best big teeth grounds, still managed to find a few. Got the Striatolamia macrotas from the bottom of the shingle ridge and also a fish vertebra? (Can anyone confirm). The rest of the teeth were all from the red crag layer. Also found a possible cow shark tooth which i have never found! (Please say it is!!!) And some other fossil, i have found a lot of these previously but never as large. Apologies i cant take any better

    Suffolk Tooth ID?

    Hi Guys and Girls. Going through some of my old teeth on the weekend and found the one below. Any ideas on what it is? Doesn't look like any shark tooth i have ever found from my usual sites. Thinking possibly fish? It is around 13mm long. Out of the thousands i have found over the years none are like this. Unfortunately, i am unsure of exactly where i got it, but would have been either the Rocks at Ramsholt (London Clay and Red Crag) or Bawdsey (London Clay and Red Crag) as these were the only two places i used to collect from. Have also included what i think is a

    Red Crag Vertebra???

    My friend found this in the Red Crag at Bawdsey, Suffolk, unfortunately it fell apart upon retrieval. Is it a large fish Vertebra? Also found what looks like a small partial Meg down on the shingle, as well as a few other smaller teeth. I have also included a tooth that i found that is partially enclosed in rock, i have never found another like this. Any ideas on how it came to be?

    Eocene ID required

    Would anyone be able to ID these two finds from Ramsholt, Suffolk. The site is mostly made up of Eocene material from the London Clay beds & reworked Eocene in the Red Crag Miocene layer. The first looks like a dermal plate but I'm not sure & the second one I have no idea. Many thanks, Connah.

    Preserving fragile shells

    Yesterday I picked up several shells from the Red Crag formation at Walton on the Naze that are incredibly fragile. What is the best way to preserve them to keep them from falling apart? I already crumbled a few while rinsing them in water, I am hoping to keep the rest intact lol.
  19. Struggling to i.d. these two gastropods while rehousing them in a new box, this is the note that was left inside the original box by the owner of the fossils. Any help would be appreciated as to their identity.
  20. Hi, Had a family break at Waton on the Naze, Essex over the New Year period and spent 5 mornings combing the beach with the wife and kids. It was remarkably unproductive on most days (as well as freezing!) and so our usual haul was very much reduced. This is what we found: Glycymeris and a couple of Turritella - Red Crag A few nice examples of sharks teeth (striatolamia) - London Clay ..and my personal favourite, a piece of whale bone (balaena sp) from the unconformity between the Red Crag and London Clay. Apparently the waxy appearan
  21. Hi, Newbie to the forum but I've been picking up odd lumps of rock since I had fingers. I went to the beach with my wife and two kids on the 5th November and we had a productive day. Save for a few dog walkers we virtually had the beach to ourselves. We were there from just after low tide (9am) until the last moment when the sea was lapping at the steps (11:15) and as usual the girls had better eyes than me and my son. This is our trawl: Red Crag: Glycymeris: Neptunea, Oyster and a piece of broken bone (probably later): London Clay:
